Hi to everybody,

some weeks ago (months?) I showed the 24 cube designed by the drizzle and I was very happy ta had it made.

Today I like to show you the octahedron version of it.
Hope you like it.

Video on youtube.

Excuse my ignorance, it's 7am and I've been awake since 8am yesterday.
Is this a shape variation of the 24 cube or is this the octahedron equivalent to a 24 cube?

Both. The octahedron has the same number of edges, and they are placed in the same places!

Amzing work! I wonder what mechanism it uses! (Could it be the stables mech?) And how you got it to work that well ! And as others have asked, why is it pillowed? Just to get it as small as possible? I would have preferred a flat faced one.. :)
Last, will this puzzle be for sale at some point?

Amazing! I usually don't like pillowed puzzles but I think this was able to pull it off quite nicely. And it turns so well considering what it is! :D Fantastic.

He says that the.drizzle designed the puzzle, and his 24-cube mechanism uses the shell mech, if I recall correctly.

Great puzzle! Have you messed around with jumbling yet?

The.drizzle sold 20 (or 25) kits to make his amazing 24 cube. Each kit was designed to only make two 24 cubes of the buyers choice (a pillowed octahedron shape was one of the options). Incredible already made a 24 cube so I think this is his last 24 cube he can make.

Slightly offtopic, does the.drizzle have any unsold kits?

Very nice! I'm so glad to finally see this puzzle built, as I quite liked this shape variation :)

Also, no, no "kits" left. Sorry.

No kits left, but given we've only seen a very few built there may be a used market in the unbuilt kits he has already sold.

Yes I did a little, but as I am "a builder nor a solver" I have to be very careful :wink:
Sure :wink: :?: :mrgreen:

ASk Matt for a new design :lol:

And to all the others: thank you for your friendly words and comments. I wish there would be more designs like that for me to build. Thanks again to the.drizzle :!:

The mech is probably stabler because there's more plastic holding the pieces in the right place.

I believe the mech is stable enough for a perfect sphere. Besides for the looks, a pillowed shape would make the puzzle cheaper to print. I can't think of any other reasons.

[Censored. Please be nice!] I'm S.O.L.. No 24 Tetrahedron for me.

I.M.H.O. That looks more sphere then octahedron.
